In The New Yorker, George Steiner referred to Paul Celan's prose as "a handful of speeches and a parable, which are transforming the landscape of poetic theory and the philosophy of language." He was talking about this volume of essays, published letters, responses to questionnaires, speeches, and a parable. The prose of Celan is an "indispensable volume for those who would wish to understand the 20th century."
Paul Celan was born in Bukowina, Romania, in 1920. His parents died at the hands of the German army in 1942. He escaped, survived a period in a labor camp, and eventually settled in Paris where he taught and wrote. He received the Büchner Prize, Germany's most prestigious literary award, before he died by suicide in 1970.

Editorial Reviews

"Celan pushes language to the limits of expressiveness in these groping, incantatory pieces."—Publisher’s Weekly
